Paranormal Investigators Capture “Plague Victim Ghost” While Exploring Haunted Sanatorio Duran Hospital


A group of ghost hunters investigating an abandoned plague hospital got the shock of their lives when they filmed what appears to be a a full-body apparition of a young girl manifesting in the hospital’s basement.

The Sanatorio Duran Hospital, considered one of the most haunted locations in Central America, was built in 1918, and though the hospital has been abandoned for many years, it was once used to treat patients suffering from tuberculosis, also known as the “white plague”. Not only did the Sanatorio Duran Hospital treat patients suffering from tuberculosis, it was also an asylum for the severely mentally ill.



The mysterious figure that the investigators captured on film is said to be one of the hospital’s most famous ghosts, a girl who is said to spend most of her time roaming the lower levels of the building. Additionally, several ghostly nuns are said to still walk the halls of the hospital, seeking the sick to offer their assistance to.


While it’s been making the rounds on the internet for a week or so, the clip has been at the center of an intense debate, with many questioning the authenticity of the alleged ghost. Whether or not you believe the ghost hunting team actually captured a phantom on film or not, you can’t deny that the video is pretty spectacularly creepy, and with the history of the building in mind, makes for an interesting piece of potential paranormal evidence.

Looks like a faded picture of the grim reaper!

All the tech we have today and we get crappy video each and every time. Way to keep your market going.

Why do it if you are gonna dude run out of there, man I hate that.

Bc fear is what keeps people alive

I see what appears to be a girl stand up from a sitting position but why does the “Ghost hunter” just run away?!

why run away if you’re trying to capture a ghost and you actually see one! 😀

It is too bad that fear overcame them and they ran. If only the person filming were to catch the entire manifestation, it would of became the greatest and most viable proof of ghosts in the history of mankind.

interesting catch! wish they would have stayed to catch a little more

Which doctor was able to correctly diagnose the ghost? They deserve a Nobbel, but how do we know that this wasnt a living or dead nun who was smoking weed in a dark closet when the camera man opened the door and she ran out?
